National Public Health Week

National Public Health Week is April 1-7!

During each day of National Public Health Week, we dedicate our attention to a specific public health topic, exploring and identifying actionable strategies that individuals and communities can undertake to make a difference. These topics, carefully chosen for their critical importance, aim to engage the public in meaningful activities that contribute to our collective goal of becoming the healthiest nation. By focusing on areas such as mental health, nutrition, physical activity, and environmental health, we underscore the importance of widespread participation.


Civic Engagement (Monday)

  • Civic engagement, the actions that we and our communities take to identify and address problems, shapes our opportunities to be healthy.

Healthy Neighborhoods (Tuesday)

  • We know that where we live – where we eat, sleep, work, play, learn and pray – can have a huge effect on our health. But what makes a neighborhood healthy?

Climate Change (Wednesday)

  • Climate change is the most pressing threat to human health that our world faces today. Some groups of people, including communities of color and low-income neighborhoods, are disproportionately impacted by climate change.

New Tools and Innovations (Thursday)

  • Public health is all about preventing disease, diagnosing health conditions and encouraging health and well-being. However, achieving these goals wouldn’t be possible without the help of new tools and innovations in public health.

Reproductive and Sexual Health (Friday)

  • When people have access to quality reproductive and sexual health care and education, they can live happier and healthier lives.

Emergency Preparedness (Saturday)

  • Unexpected events such as power outages and natural disasters like earthquakes and hurricanes can happen without a moment’s notice.

Future of Public Health (Sunday)

  • Public health needs to take a fresh approach — one rooted in fairness and inclusivity. Picture this: a world where equity isn’t just a buzzword, but a guiding principle.
